My 44 years experience of teaching economics at Delhi University and offering corporate training programmes in India and abroad has only reinforced my belief that career oriented education adds immense learning value and relevant knowledge to the highly motivated students who pursue the same.
The need for programmes in career education is felt today in India more than ever in view of the challenges posed by the rapid pace of socio-economic change and the revolutionary modification of the economy. We can no longer look to the past as a guide to the future.
Globalization and the strong market forces created by electronic media and mounting competition have threatened the very survival of the long established companies. Corporations can no longer plod along historical tracks or seek the preservation of status quo. The business parameters have changed, and this change calls for imaginative and novel responses to meet the changing human resource requirements of the business world.
Preparing students for this emerging need is a particularly challenging task as the very essence of what a manager is seems to be under attack in an unprecedented way. Those who aspire to the challenge of such opportunities need to choose carefully from among the many programmes being offered in business education. Traditional management programmes have failed to produce a new class of managers with strong exposure to international business and trading environment. It is the exposure to international business and export-import management that adds the cutting edge to a basic management qualification, thereby arming managers to successfully take on any business challenge.
Foreign Trade Development Centre stands unique as the most appropriate and relevant learning ground as its programmes combine the knowledge of best existing industry practices and theory in international business. All three courses are geared to encourage students to develop self-discipline and independent judgement, the very essence of a successful career.
If you aspire to a rigorous, rewarding and exciting career in the corporate world, I invite you to join Foreign Trade Development Centre.
